It's beautiful! Didn't you make a scarf with this (or similar) pattern? The name rings a bell but I am too lazy (pretendtobebusy) to search for the thread.

Plus, it keeps a conversation going

Ravelry! has a huge pattern data base! It's endless, I swear!

I also faithfully follow the new releases put out by Twist Collective. All of the designs are by different designers! They are all purchased on a pdf basis...so no need to purchase an entire $30 book to get one pattern!

Also, sometimes I look through general categories, like "scarf" for instance. Scarves are like jewelry, you can't own too many scarves...and great for gifting, too!

I also 'follow' several of my favorite designers on Ravely, in their "Group". When she/he has a new design, it will be advertised there in their Group.

For example: BROOKLYN TWEED (Jared Flood). Oh my, he is a talent! He does everything from A to Z...hats, scarves, shawls, garments.

Other favorite designers are:

SUSANNA IC.

BABYCOCKTAILS (Thea Colman)

Twist Collective has a Group at Ravelry, too!

One of my Rav BFF's also sends me links to great patterns she has stumbled upon at Ravelry! I frequently get a message from her that just says: Look at this! Which I always do...and end up with another pattern in my library!

Beautiful, just beautiful. You have a lot of knitting endurance so I'm surprised you had to take breaks (for other knitting no doubt). The colors are scrumptious together. I love the bottom picture with the piece lying in a relaxed heap, looks like it could be a bowl of some sort of fruit soup or something else good enough to eat.

I noticed in the top picture that all sides seem to have "points" and then the one of it folded it looks straight along 2 sides. What happened there? Which is it going to be in the long run?

The sides were pinned out to be pointy, the ends to be wavy....but after I haul it around all over creation all four sides are wavy. The exaggerated points simmer themselves down. Not worried either way cuz this stole is meant for hard use, which is why I like this design. It's hardy. Not delicate.

It took me soooooo long because I got bored with it after 440 yards (two balls). The stole is six balls worth of yarn! I'd stop and work on something else, you're absolutely correcto.
